IEEE has redesigned and added new features to myIEEE, the site where members can make use of IEEE benefits and check on their subscriptions.
The redesign, which makes the site easier to navigate, was fueled by member feedback. Several modules, including the one that shows the subscriptions, have been moved to more prominent locations. New features make it easier to get to know your fellow members anywhere in the world. You can also add your favorite IEEE.tv videos to a special area in myIEEE. Just click on the “Add to myTV” button found on each IEEE.tv video.
A new section can help you in your volunteer efforts for IEEE. It links to the vTools virtual tool set, located under the Volunteer heading. It can help you manage your IEEE projects and meetings by allowing you to, for example, post comments in an online forum about upcoming meetings or discuss with other volunteers projects you’re working on.
To help volunteers get to know each other, the Volunteer Spotlight section now features a brief profile of a volunteer each time you sign on. It describes his or her IEEE activities and career highlights and provides a link to the individual’s profile from memberNet, IEEE’s social networking site. If you want your profile to appear, be sure to upload your photo and location information to memberNet.
MORE SPECTRUM Members also asked for access to additional material in the IEEE Spectrum module, located under the Knowledge heading. So there are now links to the editors’ blog and to Spectrum Radio. Check out IEEE Spectrum by clicking on the Knowledge tab at the top of the myIEEE homepage.
MyIEEE’s memberNet section, located under the myIEEE heading, has been upgraded in other ways, too. For example, it lets you find out who recently joined IEEE—which could assist you in your networking efforts. Just click on the Who’s New on memberNet link in the Community tab at the top of the page. Clicking on a name leads you to that member’s technical interests and career information.
